The Stephenville ISD board of trustees met Monday to tackle a short agenda, which included a discussion on cafeteria food improvements, new SHS organizations and recognitions.

“We talked about our efforts to improve the food quality in the cafeteria and brought in a third party to look at that,” said SISD Superintendent Matt Underwood. “We talked about cooking multiple batches, so the food would be more fresh by the time third lunch comes in.”

The board heard a presentation on the Stephenville High School organizations POWER SET and WIT.

“Kathleen Huckabee and Brian Salge spoke to the board and we got a grant for this hands-on program where the students learn in the classroom and see how that information is used in the real world,” Underwood said. “There are quite a few field trips planned and they’re super excited.”

The board recognized student Wyatt Bradshaw for his display of the district’s CORE Value of relationships.

“We did a tornado drill and during that he put one hand on his head and one on this special needs student and we thought that was pretty sweet,” Underwood said.

The SHS cross country boys and girls teams were recognized for qualifying for regionals and Christian Brown was recognized for qualifying for state in cross country.

“I didn’t know this, but Kristi Mayes said this is the first time we’ve had a boy qualify for state,” Underwood said.

Underwood said the board did touch on the facility planning list and hopes to have that list finalized soon.
